New Neighbor Series

The City of Bowling Green International Communities Liaison serves to coordinate the City’s role in communicating and working effectively with the diverse international communities represented in Bowling Green, and to serve as an advocate for Limited English Proficient (LEP) persons who may seek City services.

One of the ways that these goals are accomplished, is through the City’s New Neighbor Series which is an educational session for City Staff and Community members to learn about the history, cultural traditions, foods, dances and more from specific cultural groups represented in the city of Bowling Green. The New Neighbor Series is held once per year.

In year’s past there have been new neighbor series on Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.

This year’s program will take place on Thursday, November 30th, 2017 from 3 to 4 p.m. at Neighborhood and Community Services at 707 East Main Avenue. This program will help you gain a better understanding of the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the impact of Bosnians in Bowling Green today and will allow you to sample traditional Bosnian food and much more.

This event is free and open to the public. There will be a special presentation by Dr. Jerry Daday, Executive Director of Center of Innovative Teaching and Learning. For more information on this or any of our other international programs please contact Leyda Becker at Leyda.becker@bgky.org or 270-393-3766.
